Hi Gurus,

Up until today, my VMWare started crashing. When I startup the vmware i get
bha errors.

When I click anything related with explorer.exe on the desktop (such as opening folder, copy and paste, open control panel), i get a dialog box that says it encountered a problem. In the error signature:
Appname: explorer.exe ModName:shdocvw.dll.

In order to get files to the desktop, I had a shared folder, and i was able to get file by opening VLC Media player, and by clickiing open file dialog box, i go all the way to the shared folder and copied to the desktop with no problem. I ran MalwareBytes anti-malware and it says no problem.

I ran hijackthis, and pasted it in hijackthis.de, it also says no problem.
I went ahead and ran combofix. It found my
1. System file is infected!!
Successfully restored

2. System file is infected!!
Successfully restored

3. System file is infected!!
Successfully restored

Now, the VM restart into a BSOD
*** stop: 0x00000083(0xc0000005, 0x80637191c, 0xb9c029d0,0x00000000)

The only way i can access the windows is going into safe mode.
When i do go in, i get a dialog box:
16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction
CS:055e IP:2369 OP:63 00 6f 00 6d Choose 'Close' to terminate application

Can it still be saved?
Hope someone out there can help me.

Hello and welcome to Geekstogo!

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help.
If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

If you haven't done so yet, please go to Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide and follow the steps instructed there. If you have already done this, we still need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.

We need to create an OTL Report
Download OTL to your Desktop
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Check the box that says Scan All Users.
  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time and post them in your topic.
  • Note: the Extras.txt file only gets created on OTL's first run.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.
